it's from a comment in bz 728742
With warnings telling me something "is not possible", I stopped reading
them again and missed the "Installation finished. No error reported."
at the end. It simply got lost in the noise. No line prefix for the
final status message.
When using --force it is too late to warn about something that is
"UNRELIABLE" and "discouraged".
As I said in my earlier email, unless grub-install has run
successfully (which it has in your case because you used "--force"),
using "...--grub-setup=/bin/true..." will not install grub.
